Austin based writer Melissa Massello and founder and curator of The Distillery Market, Catelyn Silapachai jointly came up with a wonderful idea to help pups get adopted. It consists of going to your local Animal Shelter, in this case Austin Animal Center, and taking one dog out for a one hour walk.
Taking a shelter dog out for a walk greatly increases their chances for getting adopted by the next person that comes along.
It’s not only a great way for them to get their daily exercise, but it also gives them the opportunity to be in consistent contact with a person. It teaches them how to respond to caretakers and prepares them for their next engagement.
Here’s how it works:
The entire process should not take you longer than one hour. We were actually quite surprised to see how easy it was! We’re now making it into an official SUAVS weekly hang. Every Friday after work, we’ll be heading over to Austin Animal Center to visit our furry friends. Hope to see you there!
